    Without context quantity is meaningless, hence, at least two.

    quantity itself.

    This thread is silly and may be the work or a spammer or sock puppet, mentors please check. I am glad everyone is having a good time though, so it may be worth keeping for awhile.

    f = 7Hz
    t = 1 / f = 1/7 seconds
    l = c / f (where c is the speed of light in a vacuum) = 4 x 10^7 meters.

    You cheated.How did you get velocity without first knowing what length is?

    The most fundamental quantity is blue of course.

    Nope, L = 6 inches. It's a broken metronome on my desk at home that clicks away like mad, and V = 0 because it's stationary.

    37

    It is my daughter's favorite number. It has the following bizarre feature she discovered:
    In a base 26 number system where a=0, z=25, 'car' is a perfect square whose root is bl=37.

    Yeah, that's my favorite number for the exact same reason. :uhh:
